Poor Unfortunate Souls (2:26)

Cover of The Little Mermaid: Special Edition

From The Little Mermaid: Special Edition

The Jonas Brothers covered “Poor Unfortunate Souls” for the Little Mermaid two-disk special special edition of the soundtrack, released on October 3, 2006 to correspond with the two-disk The Little Mermaid Platinum Edition DVD. The Special Edition Soundtrack includes a music video for the song, where the boys are singing around a public swimming pool.

The song is also featured on Disney’s On the Record along with “Part of Your World”, “Under the Sea” and “Kiss the Girl” of songs from The Little Mermaid.

A portion of the song is performed twice in the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Halloween-themed fireworks show HalloWishes during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Although the song mostly stays true to the lyrics of the original, certain lines have been changed to prevent any reference to magic. For instance, the line “They weren’t kidding when they called me, well, a witch” was changed to “They weren’t kidding when they called me kinda strange”. Also, the second verse and ending have been omitted. Instead, the song ends with a reprise of the chorus following the first verse.

I admit that in the past I've been a nasty
They weren't kidding when they called me kinda strange
But you'll find that nowadays, I've mended all my ways
Repented, seen the light and made a change
